Developer and mentor at Code The Dream
Crystal Williams-Brown got a BFA in Animation from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, home of the Fighting Pickles. (Yes, that’s their actual mascot!) Like many recent grads, Crystal found it hard to get a job in her field. She worked in retail for some time before trying a programming course with Code the Dream. At Code the Dream, Crystal found a supportive community and discovered a passion for Ruby on Rails. Crystal quickly advanced through the program, starting as an intern before landing a role as a full-time developer with Code the Dream working on social justice applications.
